ColourPop Back to Cool Lippie Stix Set

ColourPop Back to Cool Lippie Stix Set ($30.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes six full-sized Lippie Stix for fall. All six are exclusive to the set, and the set is limited edition. It’s another set full of mostly matte/satin type shades with good color payoff and long-wear. A few shades were a bit drying towards the end of wear, which was the only “big” issue I had.

Baewatch is described as a “dusty rose in a matte finish.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark pinky plum with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage with a lightly creamy, glide-on consistency that didn’t tug but doesn’t slide around either. It wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Choker is described as a “light cool-toned beige in a creme finish.” It’s a light, rosy beige with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin finish. It had good color coverage with just a little of the natural lip coming through. The color was creamy with a light tackiness that lasted for four hours on me. It was neither drying nor hydrating. bareMinerals Nudist (P, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar). bareMinerals Sexpot (P, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Structure (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Hourglass Believer (P, $32.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar).

Mosh Pit is described as a “mid-tone warm brown in a matte finish.” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nice color coverage that applied beautifully–smooth, even color–without tugging on the lips. The consistency had just enough slip not to tug, but it adheres well to the lip so wear time is longer at six hours. It was a smidgen drying after four hours of wear. Bite Beauty Chai (P, $26.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty Verbena (P, $26.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar).

Out of Sync is described as a “bright blue fuchsia in a matte finish.” It’s a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had rich pigmentation that covered the lips with smooth, even coverage. The texture was a little drier than the other shades but not too stiff–it doesn’t glide across perfectly, though. On me, it was still going strong after six hours of wear but was somewhat drying after four hours. Givenchy Fuchsia Irresistible (205) (P, $36.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Just My Type (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Full Fuchsia (P, $17.50) is darker, glossier (95% similar). MAC No Faux Pas (LE, $17.50) is lighter (95% similar).

TGIF is described as a “true brick red in a matte finish.” It’s a medium-dark red with subtle, warmer undertones and a mostly matte finish.

Too Sexy is described as a “deep red violet with a subtle blue flash in a matte finish.” It’s a medium-dark, fuchsia-shimmered raspberry pink with cool undertones and a frosted, matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a firmer, stiffer texture. It still managed to apply evenly, but it does drag and skip across the lips at times. The color lasted for six hours strong but was drying. Urban Decay After Dark (DC, $22.00) is more shimmery, glossier (95% similar). Urban Decay Afterdark (P, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar).

NARS Humoresque Audacious Lipstick Coffret

NARS Humoresque Audacious Lipstick Coffret
NARS Humoresque Audacious Lipstick Coffret

NARS Humoresque Audacious Lipstick Coffret ($160.00 for 0.70 oz.) includes five full-sized Audacious Lipsticks held in a hefty, mirrored case with a velvet-lined interior (that has indentations where the lipsticks fit) that can be removed to just use the case in its full capacity. All five lipstick shades are part of the permanent range. Audacious Lipsticks retail for $32 each (or $160.00 for five), so this set is only “worth it” if you’re looking for the packaging, but otherwise, you might as well pick your personal five favorite shades. The quality of all five seemed exactly the same as the full-sized versions, which is quite high–soft, smooth, creamy consistencies with good pigmentation, comfortable wear and moderate wear-time. I don’t personally find it to be a very hydrating formula, but it isn’t drying either. You can see my round-up on the Audacious Lipstick formula here. I’ve swatched and re-tested the five shades as they were included in this set.

Raquel is described as a “pink beige.” It’s a light-medium, pinky-peach with warm undertones and a creamy, natural finish. It had very nearly opaque color coverage, but it is one of the creamier, more slippery shades in the range, so it doesn’t apply as well as the majority of the range does as a result. It doesn’t apply badly, it just shows lines more readily and is harder to keep looking even. It lasted for almost four hours on me and was lightly moisturizing. Bobbi Brown Pink Sand (P, $35.00) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). bareMinerals Dream Big (LE, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Bite Beauty Amaretto (P, $24.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Chanel Adrienne (402) (P, $37.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Enchanted One (LE, $17.50) is less glossy (90% similar). MAC Sweet & Sour (P, $17.50) is warmer, less glossy (90% similar). Estee Lauder Insatiable Ivory (P, $32.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Catherine (410) (P, $37.00) is darker, more muted, less pigmented (90% similar). NARS Descanso (LE, $25.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Barbara (P, $34.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC French Twist (LE, $17.50) is darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Pure Vanity (LE, $17.50) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Too Faced Sugar Daddy (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (95% similar). Bite Beauty Leche (P, $24.00) is darker, less glossy (85% similar).

Bite Beauty Latte (LE, $24.00) is darker (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Juliette is described as a “pink coral.” It’s a bright, pink-coral with a satin finish. The consistency was light-medium in weight, creamy, and glided on easily. The color lasted for four and a half hours and was comfortable to wear. MAC Tropic Tonic (P, $17.50) is darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever C303 (P, $22.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Anna is described as a “smokey rose.” It’s a subdued, medium-dark pinky-plum with subtle, cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff that went on smoothly without tugging. The consistency seemed a little better in this particular version than my full-sized, as it was creamier and less dry. It was neither drying nor hydrating over the four hours it wore for. Smashbox Mauve (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Magick (P, $21.00) is warmer (85% similar). NYX Whipped Caviar (P, $6.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar).

Fanny is described as a “rich berry.” It’s a medium-dark, pinky-berry with cool undertones and a soft shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. It lasted for almost six hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating over time. NARS Janet (P, $34.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (95% similar).

Charlotte is described as an “oxblood burgundy.” It’s a dark, reddish-brown with warm undertones and a light shine. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that covered well without looking streaky.

NARS Killer Shine Lipsticks

NARS Besame Mucho Killer Shine Lipstick
NARS Besame Mucho Killer Shine Lipstick

NARS Killer Shine Lipstick ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition formula designed for the collection that’s supposed to have “daring color and dramatic luster.” The texture feels a little heavier, thicker, and creamier than their standard range of lipsticks, but it is glossier and thinner than the Audacious Lipstick formula.

NARS Besame Mucho Killer Shine Lipstick ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “deep rose-beige.” It’s a light-medium peach subdued by warm beige with a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly while the texture was moderately creamy and glided on effortlessly. There is noticeable slip, so it looks very slightly streaky if you are looking close-up, but I didn’t find it noticeable from a normal viewing distance (e.g. not in a macro photo shot!). It lasted for three hours on me and was lightly hydrating. Chanel Julia (404) (P, $37.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Almost Bare (P, $35.00) is darker, more pigmented (95% similar). MAC Cozy Up (LE, $17.50) is lighter, more muted (95% similar). Urban Decay Naked 2 (DC, $22.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Posh Tone (P, $23.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Freckletone (P, $17.50) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Delectable (LE, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bite Beauty Caramel (P, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Revolve Around Me (LE, $52.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Edward Bess Forbidden Flower (P, $32.00) is warmer (85% similar). Bite Beauty Whip (P, $24.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Givenchy Beige Caraco (107) (P, $36.00) is lighter (85% similar). Guerlain Gracieuse (DC, $55.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). Urban Decay Vanished (P, $17.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

NARS No Shame Killer Shine Lipstick ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “red plum.” It’s a bright, medium-dark berry-red with cool, fuchsia undertones and a moderate shine. For such a simultaneously bright and dark shade, it actually applies extremely well: the color goes on smoothly, evenly, and doesn’t look streaky. It’s semi-opaque (you can see my lip freckle peeking through still) and isn’t too heavy to wear. The consistency is lightly creamy with some slip, but I didn’t have feathering when I wore it for five hours; if you’re more prone to feathering, you may want to use a lip liner as the amount of slip could result in feathering. It was lightly moisturizing as well. Urban Decay Venom (DC, $22.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). YSL Forbidden Burgundy (12) (DC, $34.00) is lighter (95% similar). Inglot #293 Lipstick Cream (P, $12.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Bite Beauty Sugared Maple (LE, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Cabaret (146) (DC, $30.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Brocade (P, $35.00) is cooler (90% similar). Estee Lauder Insolent Plum (P, $32.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty Aubergine (P, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Seduce Me (128) (DC, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar). Burberry Bright Plum (15) (P, $30.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar).

NARS Redemption Killer Shine Lipstick ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “metallic pink champagne.” It’s a light-medium, golden bronze with warm undertones and a fine, frosted shimmer. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a reflective sheen that wasn’t too dry or too slippery, so it applied well and looked even. I really liked how there was noticeable amount of coverage, but you could use less for layering as well. The color lasted for three hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

ColourPop Bad Habit, Chilly Chili, First Class, Instigator, More Better Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

Just released, there are five new, limited edition shades of ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.), which you’ll find reviewed below. Unsurprisingly, the colors were really interesting and perfect for their current 90s theme, as well as fall, but I had issues with the dry down on these… three of them felt like they never dried down. The color didn’t lift easily when I pressed my lips together, but it was clear that they weren’t completely dry, even after twenty minutes, and after wearing them for testing, they still never had that totally dry, ultra matte look. You have plenty of time to work with the ones that don’t dry down, so at least there’s that. It’s almost like a new product type, vinyl matte.

ColourPop Bad Habit Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “dusty mauve pink.” It’s a muted, medium-dark pinky plum with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had rich, opaque color payoff with a thin, liquid-y consistency that applied with smooth, even coverage. This one never fully dried down to me, even though I could press my lips without destroying the coverage/evenness of the color–it just didn’t go to fully matte. It wore well for six hours, but it seemed to break down more with food than the Ultra Mattes that dry down. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating on me. Bite Beauty Barberry (LE, $24.00) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Thomas (P, $36.00) is lighter (95% similar). Burberry Bright Plum (P, $34.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar).

ColourPop Chilly Chili Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “muted plummy brown.” It’s a muted, dark brown with hints of rose and warmth. It had a semi-matte finish due to the formula never fully drying down, so it had a vinyl-like look to it. The color coverage was intense, and a little went a long way. The color lasted for six and a half hours with even fading, while it was comfortable to wear, it was a smidgen drying. Tarte Crop Top (P, $20.00) is warmer, glossier (90% similar). Bite Beauty Brioche (P, $24.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Kat Von D Hawkwind (P, $20.00) is cooler, less glossy (90% similar).

ColourPop First Class Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “vivid orange red.” It’s a bold, bright, totally neon orange-red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had decent pigmentation, but the consistency was on the watery side, so it applied streakily and took a lot of work to maneuver into place. It dried down completely, though it didn’t seem as flat matte as other shades that dry down, and it had a tendency to come away in flakes over time, even if wear was closer to six hours. MAC Augmented Reality (LE, $17.50) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Urban Decay Tilt (P, $18.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Annabella (P, $34.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar).

ColourPop Instigator Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone peachy nude.” It’s a muted, medium-dark peach-orange with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. This was the third shade that didn’t fully dry down, and I had the same experience where the color didn’t lift after pressing my lips together, but it remained lightly tacky. It lasted for five hours, and this one “cracked” a little after an hour of wear. It was neither drying nor hydrating. Tarte Homeslice (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). Maybelline Naked Coral (P, $7.99) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay Carnal (DC, $22.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar).

ColourPop More Better Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep violet wine.” It’s a dark, berry-red with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that dried down quickly but with enough time to apply it. The texture was soft, a little dry in feel to the touch, and it lasted for five hours on me–but it faded unevenly. It was somewhat drying. NARS Blindfold (LE, $27.00) is lighter (95% similar). Milani Flirt (LE, $8.99) is darker (90% similar). Illamasqua Shard (P, $24.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Hangry (P, $20.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (90% similar).

Formula Summary: ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a long-wearing, pigmented lipstick that starts off glossy and dries down quickly to that super flat matte finish. They have minimal transfer with some of the lighter shades having almost none for the first few hours of wear, but any time you’ve had a meal, they lose that transfer-resistant quality to a noticeable degree. They tend to wear anywhere from six to ten hours with darker shades maintaining better color coverage and wear over a longer period of time. Some shades get a little drying about two-thirds to three-fourths through the wear, while a few shades have been fairly non-drying even many hours into wear. They fade away evenly with most color loss occurring from the center of the lips if eating a more oil-based meal but the majority of color survives a meal. Reapplication has been hit or miss and tends to depend on how well it wore away and how easily the shade applies normally, but reapplication tends to emphasize the lip’s natural texture significantly compared to initial application and gives lips a very wrinkled, dried-up look. I’ve layered gloss on top of some shades with moderate success, though it will obviously lose the matte finish and will transfer and I’ll get tiny flakes where the matte lip color has lifted by mixing with gloss but has been pretty minimal. The formula had no discernible taste or scent.

Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Studded Kiss Set

Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Studded Kiss Lipstick Set
Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Studded Kiss Lipstick Set

Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Studded Kiss Lipstick Set ($42.00 for 0.38 oz.) includes one full-size and seven miniature-sized Studded Kiss Lipstick. The full-sized shade is also the only limited edition/exclusive shade, as the other seven are part of the permanent range. I think that the miniature-sized versions perform better than the original version I tested in the formula, BUT the full-sized versions seem to be better than these minis (e.g. Coven, Halo, and Nayeon are under-performing relative to the full-sized versions I have, but Coven here performed better than the original Coven I tested–I have three now).

Coven is described as a “matte lavender.” It’s a light-medium, lavender purple with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that had a drier, firmer consistency so it tugged somewhat when applied, though the version in this set is much less dry compared to the original version I have from when the Studded Kiss range launched. It lasted for five hours but faded unevenly from the center of the mouth. It was drying over time. NYX Lavender (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler, glossier (85% similar). MAC Fresh Amour (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Coven (P, $18.00) is darker, cooler, less glossy (85% similar). MAC Courting Seduction (LE, $17.50) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Vanity Kills (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Dior Cloudy Matte (380) (LE, $35.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Illamasqua Posture (P, $24.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Lavender Jade (P, $17.50) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Smashbox Fairplay (P, $21.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Noble is described as a “matte petal pink nude.” It’s a light-medium, peachy-pink with a mostly matte finish. The texture was just barely creamy enough not to pull at the lips too much during application, but the texture was extremely unforgiving and clung to every imperfection on my lips (and I had exfoliated recently!). It had mostly opaque color payoff, which lasted for four hours and was drying over time. Kat Von D Muneca (P, $20.00) is cooler, less glossy (95% similar). Dior Tender Matte (340) (LE, $35.00) is darker, glossier (95% similar). Maybelline Beige Babe (P, $7.99) is cooler (95% similar). Maybelline Daringly Nude (P, $7.99) is darker (90% similar). MAC Promise Me (P, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). NYX Spirit (P, $6.00) is cooler, glossier (90% similar). Tarte Salty (P, $20.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Enchanted One (LE, $17.50) is darker, warmer (90% similar). NYX Forbidden (P, $6.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Kat Von D Noble (P, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Pillowtalk (P, $20.00) is cooler (85% similar). Anastasia Pure Hollywood (P, $20.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Child Star (P, $21.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar).

NYX Shy (P, $6.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Halo is described as a “neon clementine.” It’s a bright, tangerine orange with warm undertones and a healthy dose of fine, gold shimmer that gives it a matte frost finish. The texture was creamy but noticeably less creamy compared to the full-sized version that released just a month or two ago. It also seemed to have a lot more shimmer in it, so the frosted finish was more apparent when applied. The color wore well for five and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. NARS Timanfaya (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Kat Von D A-Go-Go (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Geraldine (P, $34.00) is less shimmery, glossier (85% similar).

Illamasqua Soaked (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker, glossier (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sexer is described as an “iridescent fluorescent pink.” It’s a vibrant, medium-dark fuchsia pink with iridescent violet micro-shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but it was less pigmented than the last version of this shade I tried. The texture was stiffer but not painfully dry. It lasted for nine hours before wearing down and was lightly drying.
MAC Dance Off, Pants Off (LE, $17.50) is darker, more muted, glossier (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Yaoi (P, $18.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).

Gold Blooded is described as a “red with subtle gold shimmer.” It’s a bright, medium red with warm undertones and subtle gold sparkle. The gold sparkle really doesn’t translate much in the finished result, though it is there if you look closely. The texture was moderately creamy with a velvety, fairly smooth feel that was thicker on the lips but didn’t slide around. It wore well for seven hours and was neither drying nor hydrating on me. Bite Beauty Rosehip (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Nikita (Left) (LE, ) is darker (95% similar).

Bachelorette is described as a “matte reddish fuchsia.” It’s a medium-dark, pinky-red with a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a texture that didn’t tug but could have been a little easier to apply if it had been creamier. The color lasted for six hours and was lightly drying over time. MAC Nutcracker Rouge (LE, $17.50) is more muted (95% similar). Surratt Beauty Shocking (P, $34.00) is lighter, lower quality (95% similar).

Wolvesmouth is described as a “metallic berry.” It’s a plummy red with warm undertones and fine plum and violet shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was somewhat buildable. The texture was light-medium in thickness and tended to emphasize lip lines a bit. I could feel the texture of the sparkle/shimmer in this one while applying. On me, the color lasted for five hours and was slightly drying. Illamasqua Shard (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop 3-Way (LE, $6.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Nayeon is described as a “pitch black with gunmetal shimmer.” It’s a medium-dark black with silver sparkle and a soft shine. The version included in the set was a lot more slippery compared to the full-sized version that I have, which applied more evenly and lasted longer. When I tested this particular version, it lasted for four hours but I could never keep it looking even. MAC Hautecore (LE, $17.50) is less shimmery, darker, glossier (90% similar).

It’s a richly pigmented lipstick with a lightly creamy consistency that glided on without tugging but didn’t feel clingy on either. It’s a shade that didn’t seem to apply as crisply as other shades directly from the tube, so you may want to use a lip brush or a lip liner to get cleaner edges. What I liked was how it applied evenly and didn’t look streaky, as some deeper shades can, and the color wore well for six hours strong without being drying (not hydrating, to be clear). This shade is from the limited edition MACnificent Me Collection.
